The museum aims to educate the public about climate change and raise awareness about preventing its negative effects on the environment and people.

The museum has been built by the United Nations Development Programme in partnership with the Government of Egypt and the financial support of the Government of Italy within a collective set of actions being implemented to support the conservation of protected areas, promote eco-tourism, and sustainable development links environment protection and sustainable use of natural resources.
